Collection of Personal Information
We collect personal information that identifies you such as name, postal address and email address (“personal information”). We also utilize a third party to match IP address with company names. We receive and store this information, including any submissions that you make. We may use the personal information collected from visitors in the following ways:
- To respond to an inquiry.
- To send you notifications about your accounts or transactions with us.
- To analyze our business and use of our website to enhance our site, develop new features, products or services.
- To contact you to discuss your interest in Portfolio.
- This personal information may be shared with our affiliates only when necessary to perform services on your behalf.
We do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13. Should we learn that a child under the age of 13 has provided us with personal information, we will delete that information from our database.
As a Portfolio client, sharing information with selected third parties, such as companies who help service the Portfolio program’s clients and dealerships, may be necessary. Portfolio will never sell or rent lists of our clients, our clients’ professional advisors or client customer’s information. Portfolio may disclose information if legally required to do so to comply with a legal process.
Like most website operators Portfolio collects non-personally identifying information that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as browser type, language preference, referring site and date and time of visitors requests. Our purpose in collecting this information is to help us better understand how Portfolio’s visitors use the website.
We log all connections to our web servers. These logs include your IP address, which is not personally identifying information, but general information about your location, connection to the internet and your internet service provider. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer the site. We also use provider data to match IP addresses with company names. While we do not detect or share personally identifiable information, we may match your IP address with company name, location and any publicly available web and email address associated with your company name. Additionally, we will use your IP address to track your navigation of the site and your navigation history may be used in current and future marketing efforts.
The security of your personal information is important to us, and we have implemented security procedures to protect the personal information that you provide us. However, no method of transmitting or storing electronic data is ever completely secure. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
